It had been awhile since I had folks over at my place. So what better reason to bring folks together than an Oktoberfest/Fall theme! :) It was really nice to catch up with some folks and gives me a chance to do some cooking!
If anyone is look for a great fall theme crock-pot meal, one of my favorites to make is a beer bbq pulled chicken! It's simple and tasty!
I've seen this recipe in a few places. Here's basically what I use:
1. 3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts (around 6 large)
2. Spices: onion flakes, smoked paprika, garlic powder, sale and pepper
3. 12 oz bottle of beer
4. 24 oz BBQ Sauce
I season the chicken with the spices and then place in the crockpot. I then pour BBQ sauce and beer over the top and let cook for 6-7 hours on low. If needed, you can toss the chicken once or twice. After 6-7 hours, I shred the chicken and toss with the beer/bbq mix and let cook another hour or so.
I then get small buns/rolls. It always seems to be a crowd pleasure. This time I tried Stubb's Hickory Bourbon BBQ sauce and used a Paulaner Oktoberfest beer. It was tasty!
A few pictures from the weekend. Great weather out! It has been a perfect fall so far!
